The GMAT is a four letter ‘word’ that perpetuates fear into many of its takers. However, with proper planning and preparation, you can be successful with the GMAT.
“What if I get a low score?” Please keep in mind that the GMAT is only part of your application. If you did not do as well as you had hoped, there is good news. You are allowed to take the GMAT again and we will look at your BEST overall score (not the individual components). Realistically, you probably will not dramatically increase your score, but if you believe you had a ‘bad test day,’ you may want to consider retaking the GMAT.
Here are a few tips from mba.com:
- Use the allotted testing time wisely by becoming familiar in advance with the test, the kinds of questions asked, and directions for each section.
- Read all test directions carefully.
- Read each question carefully and thoroughly. Before answering a question, determine exactly what is being asked, then eliminate the wrong answers and select the best choice.
- Once you have selected your answer to a question you will be asked to confirm it.
- Pace yourself so that you have enough time to answer every question. Pay attention to the number of questions and the amount of time remaining during your testing session.
Best of luck, friends!
